NGO Registration Verification

Verification Methods Of Ngo Registration

Global India Fund have created a robust credibility framework for all social organizations profiled on the portal. The credibility framework requires organizations to share multiple components of essential information with all other members of the portal. We will verify critical information such as legal and tax registrations, bank details and certifications for each listed organization. We also verify that the organization has not been blacklisted by agencies such as CAPART. In addition, all social organizations that raise donations through the portal are required to inform donors about their progress, impact and describe how donations are being used.
Our credibility framework was developed with inputs from donors, social organizations, professionals in various non-profit domains, legal experts, foundations, and other funding and support agencies.
